About Chalong

We have a number of options for Chalong apartments, but you may want to know more about Chalong first.

     
     
     

Perhaps best known as one of the most convenient areas in Phuket to moor a yacht,  Chalong is a lively centre for yachties. The Ao Chalong Yacht Club, which organises regular sailing races, makes its base in Chalong Bay, and its bar is a favourite venue for sailors to meet up and enjoy a land-based drink.

Perhaps best known as one of the most convenient areas in Phuket to moor a yacht, Chalong is a lively centre for yachties. The Ao Chalong Yacht Club, which organises regular sailing races, makes its base in Chalong Bay, and its bar is a favourite venue for sailors to meet up and enjoy a land-based drink.

The Pier and Island Hopping

Probably the most noticeable feature about the area is its 720-metre long, seven-metre wide jetty. The pier is mainly a hopping point for the many visitors going out to the nearby islands such as Koh Racha, Koh Lon Coral Island. There’s also a recently-built customs office, plus immigration and a harbour master, along with a tourist rescue centre.

Nightlife, bars, pubs & restaurants

Chalong has a generous share of nightlife nowadays, having grown over the last couple of decades from a sleepy little port to a fairly vibrant centre of activity with plenty of options for a cold beer at the end of a day, with bars and restaurants at all ends of the scale. The biggest English pub in the south of Thailand is here: The Green Man. Our apartments are not short of nearby entertainment.

The range of night-time entertainment available is surprising. On the waterfront, there’s The Lighthouse, one of the area’s most recognizable spots on the bay, and further along the seafront visitors can eat exquisite fresh seafood at Kan [email protected], or fine dining at Viset Restaurant next door. On the pier road from Chalong Circle you’ll find Asado Gaucho Grill, where you can try the best barbecued meat in the area, or further down there’s Happy Days for an excellent English breakfast or Sunday roast.

The Tamarind Bar and Bull Ship Bar, also both on on the sea front are always relaxing spots for a beer; you might then want to finish the evening off in one of the several other bars just up the road. Within a short distance of our apartments there are Italian, French, German and Mediterranean restaurants, and plenty of other establishments to choose from.

Diving from Chalong – working and learning

The centre for diving and the dive community in Phuket, the majority of dive boats leave from the pier and there are many dive shops and schools in the area. Consequently there is a large community of dive masters, trainee divers and dive instructors living locally. Our apartments are ideal if you are here to work in the dive industry and want a little extra comfort, solitude but still be close by to the pier.
